Shearwater R70 “New” Model by Bembridge Marine

The Shearwater R70 is Fairly New

Let me explain wat I mean by “fairly new”.

After 7 years a RIB video of the new model was published. Shearwater RIBs are a family of designs with clean contemporary styling.

There are no official specs yet except that it’s 7.4 meters. On the Bembridge Marine Meta group I read:

A year from concept, today was the first test of our new model Shearwater R70.
We are awaiting the final stainless work, upholstery and inspection for a cat B rating.
We have seven in build. Many thanks to Guy Whitehouse designs for their help with the project.

Preventing Fatigue: World Leading Ullman Seats

Preventing is the Focus

Traveling on high-speed boats can be physically draining due to the considerable energy expended, leading to fatigue and a decline in physical capabilities.

Ullman suspension seats offer a noteworthy reduction in energy consumption compared to fixed seating, a factor that plays a crucial role in mitigating exhaustion.

Military personnel experience a significant decrease in running performance after high-speed transit when utilizing fixed seats.

In contrast, the use of Ullman Jockey Seats results in a 30.5% improvement in post-transit physical performance and endurance compared to fixed seats.

Beyond mitigating the risk of injury, Ullman Seats contribute to enhancing the operational performance of both boat crew and passengers.

This becomes particularly critical in situations where operators are tasked with military or lifesaving activities, as the distinction between being fatigued and alert could determine life or death.

You can find more examples of Ullman’s seats here on RIBsONLY.com.
